Approaching its 80th anniversary, Rome, Open City is a groundbreaking work, widely considered to be the first neorealist film. Mixing fact and fiction, this story of life and death depicts the struggles of four Roman partisans during the German occupation; shot on the streets of Rome and in a makeshift studio, only six months after the liberation of the city – while Germany still occupied Northern Italy.
